Roi Pont Baudouin
To get from Charleroi station to the city centre, you have to cross the Pont Roi Baudouin. This bridge over the River Sambre is a special place. It resembles some kind of medieval drawbridge which everyone wanting to enter the city has to cross. For the Hotel Charleroi festival, I asked a number of street musicians and homeless people to form a welcome committee for visitors to the city.
